Im not too sure. Ive heard of people running E85 and being able to pass smog tests catless...of course that was Subarus so Fords may be a bit diff tho.

if it passes now go get it done and then put those parts on and then save your old parts and right before you go back again swap it out.

As long as your emissions system is intact and working, long tube headers should not have any adverse effect.

Its a matter of personal oppinion and in mine yes there half the price of bbk headers and they dont run a "solid flandge" that warps and leaks like bbks mac run indavidual flanges over each exhaust port so they r harder to warp and leak check em out!
